The collection is global and, unencumbered by any thematic constraints, includes all kinds of styles and forms of expression. This wide range reflects UNESCO’s philosophy of “Building a Culture of Peace” perfectly.

„With the greatest respect for the creative geniuses behind these works of art, I have tried in this project to add a new interpretative facet to these masterpieces in my visual language. I am honoured to have entered into an intellectual and artistic photographic dialogue with them“, Lois Lammerhuber recounts.
